Casey is home from fire fighting. For a few days at least. Nice to see him. Alive and well.
Vanessa just finished her LAST college class! She is now the proud recipient of a bachelor's degree in accounting. We'll be taking her out to celebrate at Emilio's this week.
And a garden update:
Sadly, we're not guaranteed tomatoes this year. Perhaps with another month of warm weather. We should have been running out of room to put them by now.
But not when they look like this:
Even having this guy watching over the garden has not helped.
The usual August standbys are blooming in the garden;
Patsi at Garden Endeavors also enjoys morning glories, along with hummingbirds, vines and hawks in her garden.
The thunbergia vines have been blooming at last and I'm pleased with them;
Our neighbor's hibiscus. Gorgeous isn't it?
Still loving the datura;
A volunteer hollyhock in the front garden;
The back garden is looking normal for August - overgrown and tired. (Kind of like me?)
Truthfully I'm looking forward to fall, winter, and the promise of another spring.
But Chelsea's still enjoying the August sun.
And a final note on the Olympics............
A new olympic sport according to Cute With Chris.....
